What kind of fireworks can I purchase at a retail stand in Kearney?
Fireworks that are classified as Consumer Fireworks or novelties may be sold at retail stands. The following items are not classified as consumer fireworks and therefore are illegal:

• Rockets that are mounted on a stick or wire and project in the air when ignited, with or without report.
• All wire sparklers are illegal.
• Nighttime parachutes.
• Fireworks that are shot into the air and after coming to the ground cause automatic ignition due to sufficient temperature.
• Firecrackers that contain more that fifty milligrams of explosive composition.
• Fireworks that have been tested by the State Fire Marshal as a response to complaints and have been deemed to be unsafe.
